    Help! Parallel Plates Velocity of Electron

    New to the forums and am hoping to find some major help...

    I need some help understanding parallel plates and how to calculate the velocity of an electron going through them. What formula's would I use?

    Any help would be appreciated...please help me!

    Thanks,

    ...Dan

    i'm assuming you mean parellel plates as capacitors and uniform electric fields.

    you need:
    three quasions of kinamatics
    a=F/m
    E=F/q
